Frequently Asked Questions
To get started, I encourage you to take a wellness readiness questionnaire (WRQ), and if you think you are ready schedule a free 20-minute consultation with me. Also, to learn more about the health conditions that I also support, you can view my areas of focus here.
No. I have extensive training in Nutrition and Functional Medicine holding credentials that allow me to create wellness. But I am not a licensed medical doctor and does not treat disease. I cannot give prescriptions, nor instructions on taking medications. If any labs come back significantly outside the normal range, you’ll be asked to follow-up with your PCP.
Consultations can be held in-person in my Irving, TX office or virtually with zoom or a phone call.
Yes, I see clients from many states other than Texas but however, it depends on the state law where individualized nutrition counseling is permitted. Call me or message me to check. Locally, my clients are located in Irving, Coppell, Lewisville, Flower Mound, Grapevine, Carrolton, Farmers Branch, Plano, Dallas, Garland, Rowlett, and Frisco to name a few close by suburbs.
Some clients are scared to see a nutritionist because they contemplate that they will tell them to eat all salads and greens. There is plenty of good-tasting, nutrient-dense substitutes that you can enjoy that I can help you find. And a lot of them say “why didn’t I try this earlier?”
Due to the costs and limitations that come with accepting insurance, I am not accepting insurance at this time. We can, however, provide you with a receipt to submit for possible reimbursement or to go toward your deductible if you meet the requirements of your plan
All services will be billed to you directly. You will need to check with your benefit plan administrator to determine if nutritionist services are eligible for reimbursement and under what circumstances. Many times, a benefit plan administrator will require a Letter of Medical Necessity that describes the reason for nutritionist services. This letter must come from a licensed physician.
Yes, we can order just about any labs you would have done with a doctor, and a lot more. We can order blood work, as well as functional urine, stool, and saliva testing. While these don’t go through insurance, self-pay rates/ direct test pricing often cost less and you can typically pay with an HSA card.
